Police locate person of interest in Shawnee homicide investigation

April 13, 2010

Shawnee police say they have located a person of interest they were seeking in relation to a murder investigation.

Police reported Tuesday they had located Kansas City, Kan., resident Micheal Lewis, 22, in Long Beach, Calif. Police had asked the public for help in finding Lewis to question him relating to the murder of Curley Tyler, 43, who was discovered shot to death in his SUV April 4 at his Shawnee apartment complex.

Police said they would travel to Long Beach Tuesday to question Lewis.

The Shawnee Police Department announced Monday that its Major Case Squad has taken over the Curley M. Tyler homicide investigation from the Metro Squad, which ended its investigation Friday, April 9.

The Metro Squad last week searched a Kansas City, Kan., house in connection to the investigation, questioning three residents of the home and searching a vehicle parked at there, but no arrests were made.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Shawnee Police Major Case Squad at 742-6690 or 631-2150.
